Woman battling breast cancer stunned by strangers kind gesture

A lovely random act of kindness.

With so much pain and sadness in the world, it's always nice to hear a feel-good story which proves there are still good people left.


A mother from Oklahoma is battling breast cancer and has been documenting much of her journey on Facebook.

One of Jerina Edwards' posts is getting a lot of attention for restoring people's faith in humanity.


She and her family were having food at an Chinese restaurant when she was pleasantly surprised by a complete stranger's random act of kindness.

The man had paid for the Edwards' dinner and left a note explaining why.

It said:

''I lost my wife 5 years ago,

I know how tough it can be going through this.

Your meal is on me.

Merry Christmas.''


Jerina posted the note to Facebook expressing her gratitude.

''We went out to eat last night at a little Chinese place after church. Right as we were getting ready to ask for our ticket the waitress brought us this instead. Someone in the restaurant had paid our bill & left us this note.

More than anything, having cancer has shown me that there are a lot of good people in this world and that I am grateful my own family won't be leaving notes like this for others. It has been hard, I have fought, I have been sick, tears have been shed, I have missed out on things, I have lost my hair, and I will lose my breast, but I will live. My parents will still have their daughter, my husband will still have his wife, my children will still have their mother.

Whoever you are - thank you.'' She said.
